Thomas Hardie, our HGV provider, recently staged ‘Draw it for Derian’, a competition to raise much-needed funds for Derian House Children’s Hospice. The competition saw children from across the country draw their Happy Birthday-styled artwork to celebrate Derian House’s 30th year as a hospice. The winning design, created by 11-year-old Ellie Biggs, was emblazoned on a new Volvo truck and will be travelling around the country raising money.
In support of Thomas Hardie and Derian House, we will use the Volvo Branded Truck from the 14th to the 28th of April, donating £1 for every mile travelled during that time.
Our Transport Operations Director, Neil Trotter said, “We are very happy to have the new truck with us and will hopefully be able to contribute towards an amazing cause. The campaign is an excellent example of why we’re proud to be associated with Thomas Hardie and we’re incredibly happy we can play our part in the fundraising.”
Steve Wilson, Sales & Marketing Director here at Thomas Hardie Commercials commented “We believe every child deserves to smile and by supporting Derian House we’re able to play a small part in ensuring that children and their families have something to look forward to during times of uncertainty.”
